Greatness never came from comfort zone.
Born on January 25th 1974 in Schorndorf, Germany from Romanian immigrants is a Romanian-Spanish actor based in Singapore. Despite his German birthplace and his Spanish nationality, his Romanian blood , from Ploiesti (Prahova), pushes him to use his heritage in some films, the way he found to express himself. His passion for acting manifested at childhood times where he was memorising entire dialogues from his favourite movies. He did some theatre in high school but he won't be active again until encouraged and supported by family and friends decided to start acting at the age of 42. Within 2 years he had supporting roles in short films, stage play and TVC and one lead role in a feature film. But being a non-local ethnicity makes it hard to get significant roles in film, drama or even commercials. So he started to explore scriptwriting and film editing as well as music jamming. He started learning to produce his own projects with extremely limited budget having a green screen, a cell phone for filming and editing, a tablet for scriptwriting and a creative mind.
His first recognition as film maker came with the first official selection for his "Dark Dawn in Tokyo" in 2018.
Towards the end of 2018 came his debut in Television as a major supporting role for the TV series Kultus, aired on Mediacorp Suria February 2019. Since then he continued acting and producing short films and acting in TV series
